Belkyra™/ Kybella™ is the first and only non-surgical procedure for double chin treatment that has FDA and Health Canada approval for improving the appearance of fullness in the area under the chin.
Some are prone to excess pockets of stubborn fat under the chin, commonly called a double chin but clinically known as submental fullness. This is usually due to genetics, aging, and other factors. In general, 70% of men and women find double chins just as bothersome as wrinkles or lines. A minimally invasive, nonsurgical, innovative procedure has recently been approved by Health Canada to remove your double chin and add shape and structure to the area around your jaw.
The Health Canada-approved injectable Belkyra destroys fat cells. Belkyra is an injection made from deoxycholic acid, which is a component of your own natural bile. All you need is two to six double chin treatments – walk-in, walk-out, stitch-free.
$600 per syringe.
Safe and Effective
Safe, minimally invasive and effective in reducing fat under the chin and giving your neck a more contoured profile without surgery.
Belkyra – also known as Kybella – is made of a substance that is naturally found in your body called deoxycholic acid. This naturally occurring molecule assists in breaking down fat for permanent correction, further preventing the storage and accumulation of fat cells under the chin. In the past, the only choices to double chin treatment were surgical methods or liposuction.
Yes, the effects of Belkyra™ will be permanently enjoyed. When injected, Belkyra™ causes the destruction of fat cells; once destroyed, those cells can no longer store fat. There are no maintenance or upkeep treatments or additional injections required. After the initial series of treatments, the results are permanent.
Belkyra is an excellent treatment option for those looking for a safe and effective cosmetic procedure to reduce fat under their chin. It is an ideal solution for those unhappy with the appearance of a “double chin” caused by submental fullness.
Belkyra™ is injected under your chin and causes the destruction of the fat cells there. Once these fat cells are destroyed, those cells cannot store fat, making the results permanent. The staff at LMC – Laser Medical Clinic will customize your Belkyra™ treatment plan and will be able to determine how many treatments are needed to achieve your desired chin profile. The majority of clients experiences visible results after two to four treatments sessions each spaced no less than one month apart.
Belkyra™ has been the focus of a global clinical development program involving over twenty clinical studies with more than 2,600 patients worldwide treated with Belkyra™ and its American name, Kybella™. Belkyra™ is a part of the Allergan family of products that include BOTOX® Cosmetic, Juvederm®, and LATISSE®.
As with all other cosmetic injectable treatments, you may experience mild to moderate side effects including swelling, bruising, redness, pain, numbness, tingling or itchiness and a sensation of warmth. You may experience a sensation of hardness across the treatment area or in small areas within the treatment area.
Understanding how soon you will see results is key if you plan on using Belkyra to reduce fat under your chin. It may take 4-6 weeks for most people to see a reduction in fat and fullness under the chin after their first treatment. However, results can vary from person to person. There is minimal discomfort or pain associated with the Belkyra injections, which usually takes just a few minutes.
